I'm not sure that I understand you.  Your original question was about the Mann-Whitney U test,
which PSPP provides as a subcommand to the NPAR tests command.

For example, if you have a variable called X and another called G and G has dichotomous
valus 1 and 2, then a command like


will perform the mann-whitney test using the null hypothesis that the subsamples of X defined by
the values 1 and 2 of G come from the same sample.

In future, can you please remember to post follow-up questions like this, to the list, so that
others get the benefit of the answer. (Others might also be able to give you a better reply too.)
